Painting groups meet weekly and are an enjoyable, relaxed way to develop your painting skills with Rosemary's help. They take place at Derrington Village Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at Foxt Village Hall on Mondays.



Joining in with a weekly art group is a chance to paint with like-minded people in a comfortable atmosphere. All with guidance from a professional artist and tutor who shows, usually through demonstration of painting techniques (and sometimes a complete painting demonstration) how to progress and enjoy even more your hobby and passion. Friendships are made, laughter is heard and people enjoy their own and each others creativity.  And you don't already have to be a painter to join in - raw beginners are welcomed and tuition is given to guide them through the basics. 

CURRENT TERM: Starts week beginning 1st January and finishes the week beginning 26th. March 

CREDIT SYSTEM   ...any sessions missed (for any reason) may be "caught up" by joining another class, space permitting. 

Each group is made up of painters of varied experience, including  beginners  and Rosemary ensures there always a step-by-step project each term for those with little experience. This is optional, and more practiced painters may elect to do their own subject in any medium except oil, with Rosemary's guidance when required.




Derrington is situated two miles out of Stafford, just off the A518 Stafford/Telford road. ST18 9LR

There are currently groups running on:    

 Tuesday morning  



              Tuesday afternoon                  


 Thursday mornings

  9.45am- 12.15pm


Thursday afternoons




Each year these groups hold a very successful exhibition. Some of the proceeds of this go to Oak Tree farm charity and some goes towards purchasing art materials for group members to use. This works really well, because it means that when something new comes along everyone who wants to can try it out without having to buy it first. We also have an extensive library of art tuition books and Dvds for group members to enjoy.
